Celtic: These fans lavish praise on ‘class act’ Nir Bitton

Celtic’s Nir Bitton was praised by several journalists for his performance in last weekend’s win in the Glasgow derby.

Football Scotland‘s Craig Williams said that he was “one of the star performers” at Ibrox, while Derek McGregor described him as “ice-cool under pressure” in The Scottish Sun, and Sky Sports‘ Allan Valente called him “impressive“.

Celtic fan @_67ONeill on Twitter also joined in the commendation for the 27-year-old Israel international, believing him to be the most underappreciated player at the club.

Bitton, who was sidelined for almost a year with a knee injury (as per The Scottish Sun), has made 11 appearances already this season following the win at Ibrox and, despite playing most of his career in defensive midfield, he has frequently filled in at centre-back in the early weeks of the current campaign.

However, he looks set to be missing for most of September after The Scottish Sun quoted Celtic manager Neil Lennon as saying that Bitton will be out for “three or four weeks” with injury.

These Celtic fans took to Twitter to voice their own words of acclaim for the 27-year-old, whose current contract expires at the end of this season:
